An island of fine Italian cuisine in a sea of French and Creole restaurants, Spiga just may have the best-looking dining room in Grand Case. It's set inside a restored 1914 Creole home just off the town's main drag. Giving off a warm amber glow, the interior has a pitched wooden ceiling and wood-trimmed windows with curtains rustling in the breeze. It's a relaxing place to sample flavorful handmade pastas (tagliatelle with veal bolognese ragu, or tagliolini with scallops and shrimp in a sweet grape-tomato sauce), grilled and braised meats, and local mahi mahi or snapper, here lightly sautéed or grist for the hearty Italian cioppino. Tip: Spiga is small, so reservations are a must.
